This multiple screen documentary began when director Janet Solomon picked up her camera and drove to see the third humpback to strand in the first week of August 2016. It focuses on an oil and gas seismic survey that took place off the KZN coastline, which was extended into the whale migration season that year. Becoming Visibleinvestigates the risks posed by unilateral, indiscriminate traumatizing noise exposure from marine seismic surveys to many marine species, and the vulnerability of fishery-based livelihoods to these impacts.

It would be great if you could attend and please do share with your networks there. Talks will be in English, and the film is in English.

See you there.
